Oh-oh, say, can you breathe?

I was reading about how some major league baseball players are kneeling during the national anthem before their games, and it got me thinking. Why the hell are they even playing the national anthem at the baseball games? There is no one in the stadium but the players, the coaches, and the umpires. The networks do not show the playing of the anthem on the tube. What is the point?

And really, what ever is the point, even in normal times? The anthem is now just a scab over the division that is literally killing people in our country every day. It's time to stop playing it at sporting events. Especially now. The people on the field have enough to worry about.


  1. "The people on the field have enough to worry about." Especially batters for the Houston Astros.
